Elvis Elvis Presley covered more than 400 originals Presley
The Originals

This is the original site of information about original versions of numbers recorded by Elvis Presley, which I began in about 1995. Other sites have copied it, some have translated it, but this site is the one that is best maintained.
This list only includes numbers that were recorded by someone before Elvis's own version: it does not include numbers that Elvis recorded first.
If you have any information or comments, contact me.

A number of people have asked me if Elvis only sang covers, or if I can provide a full list of songs sung by Elvis, or other questions in a similar vein. For their benefit, in addition to the numbers listed in the main part of this site (i.e. those numbers recorded by Elvis that had previously been recorded by someone else), below is a list of titles that Elvis recorded first.

I might be persuaded to provide additional information about these titles, such as writers, date recorded, etc., assuming there is sufficient call. For the time being, I hope you will be happy with just the titles.
